The Memory of Our Village

Through Abdullah Rozzi’s work, we are able to gain a sense the importance of the existence of the olive tree as a symbol of national heritage and endurance- where every leaf, branch and root, resonates throughout the landscape. Through the subtlety of his painting technique, Rozzi presents us with an impression of his environment- of the colours, the light and the general atmosphere of a place that exists neither in the present nor in the past but almost as an idyllic daydream.
